Description

Self-avowed twentysomething Brett McCracken has grown up in the evangelical Christian subculture and observed the recent shift away from the "stained glass and steeples" of traditional Christianity to a more unorthodox, stylized twenty-first-century church. This change raises a big issue for the church in our postmodern world: the question of cool. The question is whether or not Christianity can be, should be, or is, in fact, cool. This probing book is about an growing category of Christians McCracken calls "Christian hipsters"--an analysis of what they're about, why they exist, and what it all means for Christianity and the church's relevancy and hipness in today's youth-oriented culture.
